Australian Open: Emotional Kvitova into Open semis with Tsitsipas and Collins

first_imgJanuary 22, 2019 Czech Republic’s Petra Kvitova in action.   –  REUTERS COMMENT The Czech had not gone past the last eight at a major since a burglar slashed her left hand in December 2016, forcing her out of the game for six months An emotional Petra Kvitova swept into her first Grand Slam semi-final Tuesday since a terrifying knife attack almost ended her career as the fairytale runs of Stefanos Tsitsipas and Danielle Collins continued at the Australian Open.The Czech had not gone past the last eight at a major since a burglar slashed her left hand in December 2016, forcing her out of the game for six months and leaving her with lasting nerve damage in the fingers of her racquet hand.But the eighth seed has bounced back and is on a sensational 10-match unbeaten streak after claiming the Sydney International warm-up title.She proved too much for Ashleigh Barty, crushing the local hope 6-1, 6-4, and was in tears afterwards as she reflected on her long journey back to the top.“Really, I didn’t imagine to be back on this great stadium and play with the best,” the two-time Wimbledon champion said. “It’s great.” Kvitova will face unseeded American Collins in the semi-final on Thursday and she desperately wants to reach Saturday’s decider.“I want it bad, that’s right,” Kvitova said.Collins, the world number 35, had never won a Grand Slam match before entering this year’s tournament but she stunned three-time major champion and second seed Angelique Kerber in round four.And the 25-year-old from Florida continued her Cinderella run by bouncing back spectacularly to down Russia’s Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova 2-6, 7-5, 6-1 in the quarter-finals.Collins, who has spent long stretches of her career playing small tournaments to build up her ranking points, was in big trouble after losing the first set to the world number 44.But she fearlessly battled back into the match to again stamp her mark on the tournament.“This has all been a really incredible experience,” she said.“This time last year I was playing a challenger (tournament) in Newport Beach. But, yeah, I think I’m really embracing it. It makes it a lot easier when you play in front of great fans and really good energy.” Greek sensation Tsitsipas was also living the dream after powering into the last four with a measured 7-5, 4-6, 6-4, 7-6 (7/2) win over Spain’s Roberto Bautista Agut.The 20-year-old, who ended Swiss great Roger Federer’s tournament, became the youngest man to reach the semis at Melbourne Park since Andy Roddick in 2003 and the first player from Greece — man or woman — to get so far at Grand Slam.- Living the dream – His exploits line him up with semi-final against either fellow young gun Frances Tiafoe of the United States or 17-time Grand Slam-winning Spaniard Rafael Nadal.“I’m just living the dream, living what I’ve been working hard for,” said the 14th seed, who lives in Cyprus but trains at the academy of Serena Williams’ coach Patrick Mouratoglou in France.“I feel a bit emotional but not too much — I know I really worked hard to get here, playing in semis of a Grand Slam.” Bautista Agut, seeded 22, acknowledged Tsitsipas was playing well, but with Nadal and Novak Djokovic still in the tournament he doesn’t give him much chance of winning the title.“Of course, he has a lot of time to improve, a lot of time to get enough experience to be in the finals of these tournaments,” he said.“But here I think Rafa and Novak are my favourites.” Nadal, meanwhile, looks to move another step closer to winning an event he has only claimed once before among his 17 major titles against Tiafoe, who announced himself on the world stage by beating fifth seed Kevin Anderson in the second round.The Spaniard, who has been in ominous touch so far, is wary of the threat posed by the 21-year-old, who has nothing to lose.“He has everything. He’s quick. He serves well. Very quick forehand,” said the second seed, who has not dropped a set so far.“He’s a very dynamic player, aggressive one. Of course, he’s dangerous.” SHARE SHARE EMAIL COMMENTScenter_img × Published on Czech Republic’s Petra Kvitova in action.   –  REUTERS SHARE sportlast_img read more

New Brunswick funding cannabis education and seeking advisors from public

first_imgFREDERICTON – The New Brunswick government is contributing $250,000 to a Cannabis Education and Awareness Fund and seeking members of the public to be part of an advisory committee on how the money is spent.Recreational cannabis will be legalized later this year and Finance Minister Cathy Rogers says it’s important to be socially responsible and promote harm reduction such as keeping it away from children and youth.The province has signed agreements with four cannabis producers that will require two per cent of their gross earnings to go into the fund.Rogers says it will be some time before they start to make sales, so government is injecting funding now so that education programs can begin.The advisory committee will have seven members, including the chairman of the Cannabis Management Corporation and three senior civil servants, with the others coming from the public.Rogers says the government is calling for expressions of interest from people who want to be part of the committee.last_img read more

Ontario tweaks labour reform bill but no changes to minimum wage phasein

TORONTO – A major Ontario labour reform bill is being tweaked but so far is seeing no significant changes to key parts, including a controversial phase-in of a $15 minimum wage, leaving concerned businesses looking to a relief package promised by the premier.The Liberal government’s legislation includes equal pay for part-time workers, increased vacation entitlements and expanded personal emergency leave, but the centrepiece is an increase in the minimum wage. It is currently set to rise from $11.60 in October to $14 in January, and $15 in 2019.Businesses have said a 32 per cent increase in less than 18 months will be tough to absorb, and have called for a slower rise.But the government made no changes to that timeline in the first round of amendments at a Liberal-dominated committee this week, and also voted down almost every change proposed by the NDP, such as giving all workers five paid sick days and eliminating minimum wage exemptions for servers.There will be another chance to make changes to the bill, after second reading expected next month, and business groups say they’ll continue to press for amendments.They’re also eager, however, for the government to unveil a package of offsets to help businesses cope with increased costs the labour bill will bring. Premier Kathleen Wynne has promised it will come in the fall.“We know that there are small businesses, particularly some mom and pop businesses in our communities, that are going to have a challenge going through that transition,” she said earlier this month.Economic Development Minister Brad Duguid has said a break for small businesses will come “likely on the tax side.”That’s in addition to already planned burden reductions such as cutting administrative costs, streamlining compliance for small businesses, and increasing small businesses’ share of government procurement, Duguid said.Jeff Leal, the minister responsible for small business, has said Ontario is eyeing the example of Manitoba, which has a zero tax rate for small businesses on the first $450,000 of active income.Wynne has also mentioned that restaurant owners in particular have cited fees they pay to the Liquor Control Board of Ontario as an issue, and that businesses have said “training dollars are a challenge to find.”While much of the government’s talk about the offset package has focused on small businesses, large ones have said the minimum wage increase will hurt them as well.Metro Inc. estimates the wage increase will cost about $45 million to $50 million next year and is accelerating its study of automation. Loblaw Companies Ltd. (TSX:L) has estimated a $190-million hit next year from higher minimum wages in Ontario and Alberta. Magna International has warned that higher costs could affect its business investments in the province.Offsets should be across the board, said Karl Baldauf of the Ontario Chamber of Commerce.“Small businesses have tighter margins than large businesses, but that being said, large businesses will accommodate this type of hit in a way that will be detrimental to jobs, in a way that will be detrimental to economic growth in this province, and I can’t understand how any provincial government would want to enable that to take place,” he said.Offsets also need to come sooner rather than later, as businesses are planning now for 2018 and if a package comes in November, that is too late, Baldauf said.“Businesses will have started to increase costs, they will have started to let people go, they will have stopped hiring people that they might have hired because they’re planning now under the presumption there is no offset.”The Keep Ontario Working Coalition, which includes the chamber, last week released an economic analysis that it commissioned showing the labour reforms would put 185,000 jobs at risk. Baldauf said the government needs to address the problem through a combination of offsets, delays and amendments to the labour bill.The minimum wage hike does, however, have support as well. During the first round of committee hearings, many labour and other left-leaning groups cheered the increase, saying it addresses income disparity and stimulates the economy. A group of economists also wrote a letter last month in support of a $15 minimum wage.The changes the government did make to the bill this week include providing an unpaid sexual assault/domestic violence leave of up to 17 weeks, where in the original bill it was lumped in with 10 days of personal emergency leave.A few amendments were made to scheduling provisions, as well. If a shift is cancelled within 48 hours of its start, employers must pay three hours’ wages, but a new amendment was added to exempt weather-dependent work.If an employee gets less than 96 hours’ notice of a shift, they can refuse it, but an exemption was created for work that is needed to deal with an emergency or to remedy or mitigate a risk to public safety.Note to readers: This is a corrected story. A previous version incorrectly stated the Liberals voted down all NDP amendments.

NASA looks to blow up modules for cheap ISS expansion

first_imgMaking an inexpensive addition to the International Space Station (ISS) may be as simple as blowing up a tire if a deal is reached between NASA and Bigelow Aerospace. Bigelow Aerospace, based in North Las Vegas, Nevada, is giving NASA and other companies a cheaper alternative to the traditional manufacturing of spacecraft or space modules thanks to its patented expandable habitats. To test and demonstrate the technology behind the habitats, the company launched the Genesis I, in 2006, and the Genesis II, in 2007.Since the launch of Genesis I and II, the company has moved on to create even larger modules called Sundancer and BA330. These achievements, along with the fact that Bigelow Aerospace already has two expandable spacecrafts in orbit, probably helped in attracting NASA to the company to consider the use of its technology to help expand the International Space Station at a fraction of the normal cost. Also helping Bigelow is the fact that NASA has been encouraged by President Obama‘s administration to spur commercial development within space.NASA is currently evaluating a proposal to acquire a Bigelow Expandable Activity Module (BEAM) for the ISS. The module would be a slightly larger version of the Genesis I and II already in orbit. If the BEAM proposal is accepted it would be flown up to the ISS using a commercial rocket and attached using a robot. Once attached, BEAM would help NASA develop experience with expandable and “soft sided” modules while Bigelow Aerospace would gain another opportunity to demonstrate its technology.Read more at Space.com and DVICE.last_img read more

AI Can Now Recreate Famous Paintings With a 3D Printer

first_img Robot Dog Astro Can Sit, Lie Down, and Save LivesMIT’s AI Knitting System Designs, Creates Woven Garments Can artificial intelligence and a 3D printer help fight the art world’s greatest threat?A team from MIT’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL) thinks so.A new system aimed at designing reproductions of paintings uses 3D printing and deep learning to “authentically recreate favorite paintings”—regardless of lighting conditions or placement.AdChoices广告“If you just reproduce the color of a painting as it looks in the gallery, it might look different in your home,” study co-author Changil Kim, a postdoctoral fellow at CSAIL, said in a statement.So, instead of using the traditional four fixed inks (cyan, magenta, yellow, black) found in 2D printers, the researchers applied a special technique they call “color-contoning.”The team trained a deep-learning model to predict the optimal stack of different inks (via MIT CSAIL)The process involves a 3D printer and 10 different transparent inks stacked in very thin layers—akin to the wafers and chocolate of a Kit-Kat bar.By combining this method with a decades-old approach of half-toning (which creates a gradient-like effect through dots), they were able to better capture the “nuances of the colors.”Based on experimental replications of various oil paintings created by an artist collaborator, the team found that RePaint was more than four times more accurate at creating exact color shades than state-of-the-art physical models.“Our system works under any lighting condition, which shows a far greater color reproduction capability than almost any other previous work,” Kim said.There is one catch, though: CSAIL’s facsimiles are only about the size of a business card. After all, 3D printing doesn’t come cheap.In the future, however, they expect that advanced commercial printers will allow for larger paintings, paving the way for a more efficient system.Still, the question remains: What inks should be used for which paintings?As with many tasks these days, humans passed the burden of selection on to a deep-learning model, which can predict the optimal stack of hues in each area of the canvas.RePaint’s creators envision its use in remaking artwork for a home, protecting originals in museums, and creating prints of historical pieces.Researchers found that RePaint is more than four times more accurate than state-of-the-art physical models at creating the exact color shades for different artworks (via MIT CSAIL)The program has a ways to go, though, before it can start whipping up duplicates of “Starry Night.”For starters, it can’t completely reproduce certain colors—like cobalt blue—due to a limited ink library, which mechanical engineer Mike Foshey hopes to expand soon.And, as you can see in the images and videos above, there is something distinctly lacking in RePaint’s imitations: texture. The team will continue working toward better detailing, eventually hoping to create special effects like glossy and matte finishes.“The value of fine art has rapidly increased in recent years, so there’s an increased tendency for it to be locked up in warehouses, away from the public eye,” Foshey said. “We’re building the technology to reverse this trend, and to create inexpensive and accurate reproductions that can be enjoyed by all.”A full report was published online this week by MIT CSAIL.More coverage on Geek.com:Would You Pay $10K For This AI-Generated Portrait?This Art-Designing AI Needs More TrainingMove Over, Picasso: Robot Paintings Are Surprisingly Good Stay on targetlast_img read more

An Invisible Cloak for Magnetism

first_imgThe subject of metamaterials is mad science at its finest – researchers trying to create materials with properties that don’t exist in nature, and that cannot be made with ordinary atoms. Citation: An Invisible Cloak for Magnetism (2008, March 31) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2008-03-invisible-cloak-magnetism.html Explore further The researchers then applied a magnetic field to the metamaterial, “pushing” the field through the gaps between the lead plates. The metamaterial showed a diamagnetic response – a weak magnetic repulsion. The strength of the repulsion depended on the ratio between the size of the lead plates and the lattice spacing. For the scientists, this connection was significant: it meant that they could tune the metamaterial’s magnetic properties. The researchers explain that the non-resonant metamaterial could have some advantages over those that consist of resonant structures and have a negative refractive index. The negative refractive index is one way to achieve optical invisibility, but it comes at the price of high loss and frequency dispersion. The researchers plan to use non-resonant metamaterials for other purposes. For instance, a design paradigm called transformation optics tells scientists what properties are needed to achieve a certain effect. Because these properties always have non-negative refractive indices, non-resonant metamaterials can provide the required properties. “Transformation optics is a way to design devices,” Wood explained. “It allows us to mimic transforming space for light, and gives us a prescription for the electromagnetic properties we need to achieve a given effect, like cloaking. However, these properties are not usually found in natural materials, and this is where metamaterials can help. They allow us to make the devices that we design using transformation optics.”More information: Magnus, F.; Wood, B.; Moore, J.; Morrison, K.; Perkins, G.; Fyson, J.; Wiltshire, M. C.

Light may increase magnetic memory speeds 1000 times, decrease electricity consumption Metamaterials possess nano-scale structures and special effects that can only be created in the lab, which can lead to a variety of interesting applications. For example, some metamaterials have a negative refractive index, meaning they refract incoming light waves “through” themselves rather than back to the source of the light, and act as “invisible cloaks.”Now, researchers from Imperial College London are doing something a little different with metamaterials. In a recent study published in Nature Materials, Fridrik Magnus, et al., have fabricated the first non-resonant metamaterial that operates with light waves of zero frequency. This goal is somewhat different than most studies with metamaterials, which focus on higher frequencies like microwaves and visible light. For one thing, the scientists could use the metamaterial as a building block for a magnetic invisibility cloak. Such a cloak could hide magnetism by guiding an applied magnetic field around a cloaked region.“It is already possible to protect a region of space from magnetic fields; simply surrounding it with a strongly magnetic material will do the job,” coauthor Ben Wood of Imperial College London told PhysOrg.com. “However, a magnetic cloak would go further – it would keep magnetic fields out of the inner region without disturbing the fields outside the cloak.”In the zero-frequency regime, the wavelength is very large, and magnetism and electricity become decoupled. This decoupling allows the researchers to concentrate on the magnetic properties without worrying about the electric ones when designing devices like the cloak. “When we say that ours is a zero-frequency metamaterial, we mean that it behaves as intended only at very low or zero frequency,” Wood explained. “It will interact with light at higher frequencies, but not in a useful way.”The new metamaterial consists of layers of stacked lattices, which themselves are composed of 10 x 10 arrays of thin lead plates. One of the defining properties of a metamaterial is that its lattice spacing must be smaller than the wavelength of light it interacts with. For light with zero frequency, the wavelength is large and diverges, so that this constraint is easily met. The individual lead plates in the design are 300 nanometers thick and 167 micrometers across, with the lattices spaced 100 micrometers apart. last_img read more

The latest version of the treatment planning system consolidates the best of Elekta’s treatment planning solutions into a single system and features a new system architecture and graphical user interface.”The enhanced graphical interface in Monaco 5 is a tremendous change,” said Lennart Jahnke, Ph.D., physicist at University Medical Center Mannheim. “The new ribbon-based format is significantly cleaner than previous versions. The screen seems less crowded and ‘busy;’ everything is now in a single window on the lower side of the screen, including the beams, the prescription and the IMRT [intensity-modulated radiation therapy] constraints.”The latest version of Monaco now supports the full spectrum of radiotherapy techniques, including VMAT (volumetric modulated arc therapy), IMRT and 3-D conformal radiation therapy (CRT). Monaco 5 is especially equipped for sophisticated stereotactic therapies, such as SRS (stereotactic radiosurgery) and SRT (stereotactic radiotherapy), with added planning support for specialized beam shaping solutions, including circular bones. The system also includes the definitive Monte Carlo dose calculation engine.”Having all the delivery techniques in a single system, including collapsed cone, 3-D, IMRT, VMAT and the Monte Carlo algorithm is very important to us,” said Jamie Harris, MS, DABR, staff physicist at Avera Medical Group in Sioux Falls, S.D. “There is less time and hassle, because the workflow can be coordinated through just one computer workstation. And having Elekta as our one vendor for the linac and treatment planning software has increased interoperability — everything is streamlined and all the systems ‘talk’ to each other.”Mosaiq Receives Meaningful Use Stage 2 CertificationMosaiq version 2.6 is also debuting at AAPM, featuring its recent certification for Stage 2 meaningful use under the Drummond Group’s Electronic Health Records (EHRs) Office of the National Coordinator Authorized Body (ONC-ACB) program. Healthcare providers using the EHR systems of certified vendors are qualified to receive federal stimulus monies upon demonstrating meaningful use of the technology — a key component of the federal government’s push to improve clinical care delivery through the adoption and effective use of EHRs by U.S. healthcare providers.Demonstrators at the Elekta booth will also highlight Elekta Cloud Solutions, which provides complete oncology software hosting services for Mosaiq, eliminating costly hardware purchases and upgrades, while affording exceptional application performance and reliable, secure data protection. The portfolio of Elekta Cloud Solutions will continue to expand, enabling users more flexible deployment options, such as Monaco treatment planning in the cloud.For more information: www.elekta.com FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 Mahadevappa Mahesh discusses trends in medical physics at the 2019 AAPM meetingVideo Player is loading.Play VideoPlayMuteCurrent Time 0:00/Duration 4:01Loaded: 4.04%Stream Type LIVESeek to live, currently playing liveLIVERemaining Time -4:01 Playback Rate1xChaptersChaptersDescriptionsdescriptions off, selectedCaptionscaptions settings, opens captions settings dialogcaptions off, selectedAudio Trackdefault, selectedFullscreenThis is a modal window.Beginning of dialog window.

RockTop Partners Chooses RIO Genesis to Guide Growth

first_imgRockTop Partners Chooses RIO Genesis to Guide Growth Company News RIO Genesis RockTop Partners 2014-12-03 Tory Barringer in Headlines, News, Technology RockTop Partners, a Texas-based buyer of residential loan portfolios, has selected RIO Genesis as its technology platform provider, the software firm announced.As a company specializing in loans and properties with title problems, RockTop has seen “tremendous growth” in recent months, according to president and founding partner Jason Pinson, and only expects that trend to continue—necessitating the addition of a technology platform to help handle management and marketing, communications, compliance, due diligence, and more.”An American Land Title Association survey determined that title problems are found in up to 36 percent of all residential real estate transactions,” Pinson said. He added that RockTop’s own experience working with title defects shows at least 10 percent of loans in any given portfolio have defects “serious enough to trigger reps and warrants, impair servicer loss mitigation execution and/or negatively impact asset price.”Because of this, we believe it is critical to our continued success that we utilize all the power of the RIO Genesis technology,” he continued.”RIO Genesis is actually more than a simple software program; it is an inclusive, affordable solution for running all aspects of a real estate-related enterprise,” said Michael Krein, CEO of RIO Software Solutions, Inc. “We are delighted to be associated with RockTop Partners, who are always on the lookout for properties to purchase as one-offs or in bulk, and we look forward to building a very strong business relationship in the months and years ahead.”center_img Share December 3, 2014 517 Views last_img read more
